God knows best what is needful for us, and all that He does is for our good.


Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911) wrote a brief introduction to my 1895 edition of The Practice of the Presence of God. It begins: “The value of this little book is its extreme simplicity. The trouble with most of the religion of the day is its extreme complexity.” Today I put the last two of Brother Lawrence’s letters into the “Pages” section of this blog. From the very last one I took the words that form the title of this present post.
